WEATHER OVERVIEW: With hurricane Ida unleashing her fury on our neighbors on the gulf coast it’s a sobering reminder that we take the necessary steps to prepare ourselves for hurricane season. I pray for their safety and quick recovery. As hurricanes typically do when they pass by, they have a tendency to pull the bad weather away from us. It looks like this upcoming week we will experience pretty nice weather overall. Tuesday (S) & Wednesday (WSW) both look like nice days with light winds in the morning before picking in the afternoon which is typical for summer. Thursday (WSW) the wind will pick up and so do the rain chances at over 50%. However, it will be short lived because the wind will taper off Friday and switch out of the (NE) as we make our way into the weekend. Keep an eye on Saturday (NE) afternoon if planning to run offshore, the current projection is lighter winds in the morning but substantially higher winds in the afternoon so just keep an eye on it. Sunday (NE) looks pretty good overall.
